It’s hard to believe we’re entering Week 3 of school already. Just think - the GHMB started rehearsing six weeks ago! A few reminders for our first game week.
Each band member received a flip folder from the band at the beginning of their freshman year. The flip folder allows your student to conveniently keep their music organized and transport it easily.
If your student has misplaced the flip, it is their responsibility to replace it. Flip folders are available from Stantons Sheet Music (330 South Fourth St), Music & Arts (Graceland Shopping Center), Buckeye Brass (7445 Montgomery Dr, Plain City), or online. Flip folders come standard with 5 ‘windows.’ I have extra windows for students need them.
Music/Flip Folders will be checked weekly and is calculated into your student’s grade. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
